MORLEY Bowling Club coach Ken Perks said his players have made a successful start to the lawn bowls season and hopes to continue the good form after the Christmas break.

Perks, who won the 2016 WA Bowls Coach of the Year, said the club had about 120 men and between 40 to 50 women bowlers.

“Our top division is in second spot and they are just below the top guys, so they are pretty high up in the game,” he said.

“Our second division is coming fourth and are travelling along quite nicely for this time of the year; they have got a couple more games to go.

“As a club, we are not doing too bad at all… the gold team’s results are a little bit off the boil but they were promoted last year and now they are in a harder colour (competition).”

Perks said he wanted to improve his school-based programs.

“I have done three primary schools and a couple of high schools like Hampton Senior High School but we just cannot get the kids out of the school down to the club,” he said.

He said his program at Weld Square Primary School was also well received by students and teachers.
